Filebeat 6.5.0 - Error: unknown command "enroll" for "filebeat"


(Andrew McQuerry) #1

Testing new Beats central management and the 6.5.0 version of filebeat (downloaded today) states that "enroll" is an unknown command for filebeat.

C:\beats\filebeat-6.5.0-windows-x86_64>filebeat.exe enroll
Error: unknown command "enroll" for "filebeat"
Run 'filebeat --help' for usage.

Tried the Linux agent and it does have the "enroll" option for filebeat. Could the above error only be from the Windows version? Am I missing something?

Hi @AndrewMcQ,

Thank you for reporting back! I'm wondering, what version of Filebeat did you download? Can you share the URL?

Best regards

Hi @AndrewMcQ,

This seems to be an issue in our packaging, I've opened https://github.com/elastic/beats/issues/9096 to research and fixing it.

Thank you for your feedback!
